A Legacy of Firsts: The Everson Collects

On View November 16, 2019 – March 22, 2020

In 1911, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (known today as the Everson) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would focus on collecting works made by American artists. This decision, implemented by Museum Director Fernando Carter, was the first of many made by directors that ultimately defined the Everson’s collection as it exists today. This exhibition examines over one hundred years of the Museum’s collecting priorities, from the Museum’s earliest acquisitions in 1911 to work acquired in 2019.

Gareth Mason: Carnal Flux

On View January 11 – March 15, 2020

For British artist Gareth Mason, porcelain is an all-consuming obsession. His lusty manipulation of clay is brought full-circle through the metamorphic power of fire. His surfaces seethe, buckle, and ooze with a tectonic force that reflects his own passion for process. This exhibition is a partnership with the Syracuse University School of Art, with additional support from Laguna Clay Company.

The Story of Water: The Erie Canal as a Site of Untold Stories

This unique exhibit by Linda Zhang of Ryerson University in Toronto and Biko Gray of Syracuse University features clay vessels based on 3-D drone scans of central New York Erie Canal structures, transformed by the introduction of Canal water before the firing process. The clay models symbolize the Erie Canal's profound and lasting impact, positive and negative, on the lives of those who built it, used it, and lived near it. On exhibit in the second-floor Weighlock Gallery of the Erie Canal Museum, 318 Erie Boulevard East, Syracuse.

Renegades & Reformers: American Art Pottery

On View January 25 – July 5, 2020

Since acquiring its first works by Adelaide Alsop Robineau in 1916, the Everson Museum of Art has built one of the finest collections of art pottery in the world. Renegades and Reformers revolves around two common personality types among potters: the “renegades” who embarked on highly personal artistic quests that pushed clay and glaze to their limits, and the “reformers,” whose modern designs and social attitudes pushed back against Victorian mores.

Romeo & Juliet

Romeo & Juliet

This timeless tale is a story so well-known it needs no introduction. Set in Verona where the rival houses of Capulet and Montague have had a long-standing feud, Romeo & Juliet is Shakespeare’s famous tragedy of star-crossed lovers, filled with all the passion of young love. Underscored by ingenious wit and astonishing beauty, the play pits the bitterness of resentment against the intensity of romance. Ultimately catastrophic choices and tragic twists propel them toward a final confrontation with fate.
